Common DUI Misconceptions
The state of Florida has two ways to prove the guilt of someone charged with driving under the influence (DUI). One way to prove guilt is with evidence (such as video) of a motorist’s bad driving or failure to pass a field sobriety test (such as standing on one leg or walking a straight line). Evidence must also be offered that the driver was under the influence of and impaired by alcohol. A jury then decides if the defendant was impaired and in “actual physical control” of the vehicle, meaning the defendant was physically in or “on” the vehicle (as “on” a motorcycle) and capable of operating it, regardless of whether he or she was actually operating it at the time.
The second way Florida proves a DUI suspect’s guilt is with breathalyzer tests. Some people still have some misconceptions about the “legal limit” of 0.08 percent. A blood alcohol content (BAC) level of 0.08 percent or higher automatically triggers a DUI arrest, but if a driver’s BAC level measures under 0.08 percent, an arrest can still be made if a police officer believes the driver is impaired. The law presumes a driver is impaired with a BAC level of 0.08 percent or higher, and it presumes no impairment at 0.05 percent or under. At BAC levels between 0.05 and 0.08 percent, the state must prove a DUI charge with evidence other than a breathalyzer result.
